Top 10: Goalscoring goalkeepers

Jimmy Glass

Carlisle United vs Plymouth Argyle 1999: a match that will forever be remembered by football fans across the nation.

With 10 seconds left, a corner is awarded. The two sides are drawing 1-1 in the last game of the season. An on-loan goalkeeper, playing his final game at his temporary club, shrugs his shoulders and jogs up to join the desperate attack.

A header is parried his way and he sweeps it into the net, preserving the Football League status of his club at the expense of Scarborough. One of the most dramatic goals ever scored - Roy of the Rovers stuff -“ and watching it years later, you still get goosebumps.

Especially if you support Scarborough.
